Hybrid-related information

Hybrid related information in the driver display

Updated 7/23/2018

Depending on drive mode selected, different instruments and functions are shown in the driver display. The drive modes all consist of unique instruments that help the driver to drive the car with the optimum driving economy.

The car also stores statistics of journeys made, which can be viewed in the form of a block diagram.

Hybrid-unique symbols

The different instruments show in different ways the relationship between how much power is being taken from the electric motor and how much power is available.

Indicates current level for available electric motor power. If the symbol is filled in, it means that the electric motor is in use.

Indicates current level for available electric motor power. If the symbol is not filled in, it means that the electric motor is not in use.

Indicates the power level when the combustion engine starts. If the symbol is filled in, it means that the combustion engine is in use.

Indicates the power level when the internal combustion engine is due to start. If the symbol is not filled in, it means that the combustion engine is not in use.

An indicator that denotes that the hybrid battery is charging.

An indicator that shows the current amount of available energy in the battery for the electric motor. The indicator is shown by the hybrid battery gauge in the lower right-hand corner.

eDTE (Electrical Distance To Empty) indicator. Shows the current distance to empty battery.

Hybrid gauge

Available electric motor power

There is a battery gauge located between the hybrid gauge and the fuel gauge, in the lower right-hand section of the instrument panel. The gauge shows how much energy is left in the battery. This energy is used for the electric motor, but also to cool or heat the car.

Driver-requested power

The pointer indicates the amount of engine power requested by the driver by regulating the accelerator pedal. The higher the reading on the scale, the more power is requested by the driver in the current gear. The marking between the lightning bolt and the drop indicates the transition point where the electric motor stops working and the combustion engine takes over.

Example

The car is started but stationary, no power is requested.

The electric motor cannot supply the amount of engine power requested and the internal combustion engine starts.

The car generates current to the battery, the battery is charged, e.g. when the brake pedal is pressed lightly or during engine braking down a hill.

Drive mode Save

Drive mode Save is activated. The battery is locked at the level when the drive mode was activated. This is indicated by the symbol that is shown by the battery indicator. The energy level is maintained by the system stopping/starting the combustion engine the same way as in Hybrid mode. The combustion engine is used. If the energy level of the hybrid battery is below 33% when the drive mode is activated, the combustion engine will start to charge the battery to 33%. For further information, see the section "Drive modes".
